Yes, the Mahindras need to be happy with India’s new Prime Minister Narendra Modi using the armoured plated Mahindra Scorpio vehicle as his official car. But then there is no denying the fact that it’s the BMW which is the farthest safest car. Heads of states all over the world use them and even some of our past Prime Ministers have used them.While Mahindra & Mahindra are an Indian company, so is BMW India. It’s got a plant in Tamil Nadu where they manufacture BMW cars. Maybe the high end ones like the BMW 760Li may be brought in through the CBU route, but the fact is that BMW is as Indian as any Indian company.The armoured sedan based on the BMW 7 Series meets the most stringent safety requirements for individuals. The BMW 760Li High Security is certified to the international standard guideline BRV 2009. It means that the vehicle meets the highest requirements of ballistic protection. The BMW 760Li High Security provides optimum safety in the individual mobility segment. This is only one part of the story. The car also offers unparalleled comfort of travel and superior driver technology. Then there is also an abundance of innovative equipment features.Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India notes that for seven decades, the flagship from BMW has stunned the world through the highest level of style and contemporary luxury with maximum driving dynamics. The unique security concept is based on findings which BMW gained as a result of its determined development work. Moreover, the company has more than 30 years of experience in security vehicle engineering.At BMW’s Dingolfing plant, specific chassis components are perfectly adapted to the increase in weight due to the sedans’ armoured plating. Reinforced suspension, dampers and suspension strut top mountings are part of the model-specific component range. This approach ensures finely-tuned vehicle performance characteristics that cannot be achieved by retrofitted armor plating, says a press note from BMW India. BMW High-Security sedans are serviced by certified special garages only and the access to the vehicles is restricted to very few selected and specially trained personnel. The company also offers special driver training programs for security vehicles.
